Age gap might be a risk factor for divorce, study says

A study has shown the risk of divorce increases as the age difference between couples becomes larger, The Atlantic reported on November 9.

The study analyzed the data from more than 3,000 recently married and divorced Americans, and learned that couples with even a one-year age difference were 3% more at risk of splitting up than couples who were the same age. A 5-year age gap may increase the likelihood of divorce to 18%, while a 20 to 30-year age gap increases the possibility of divorce from 95% to 172%. According to the report, the risk of divorce in couples with age differences is more likely due to divergences in culture and interests.

Married couples who are considering the possibility of divorce should seek the help of sensitive, dedicated, and experienced divorce attorneys who know how important it is for both parties to reach an amicable settlement.

Study says divorce more common when wife gets sick

A study on 2,717 older married couples during the course of 20 years revealed couples are at higher risk of divorce when the wife becomes seriously ill, livescience reported on May 1.

Amelia Karraker, one of the study’s researchers, stated that the danger of marriage dissolution is higher when the wife develops chronic diseases such as heart disease and stroke. According to the data, 15% out of the 31% of total marriages that ended in divorce involved a chronically ill wife.

The study did not further explore why this might be the case, although Karraker suggested that the husband may have provided insufficient care while his wife was sick, influencing her decision to seek divorce.

Whatever the reason for divorce is, it should be handled with sensitivity and care. Our team at the BB Law Group PLLC has been helping divorcing couples in The Woodlands achieve favorable results and might also be able to assist you. Call us today at (832) 534-2589.


Divorce isn’t caused by living together before marriage, study says

A study conducted by an associate professor revealed cohabiting does not increase the risk of divorce, The Huffington Post reported on Tuesday, March 11.

Associate professor Arielle Kuperberg from the University of North Carolina studied data from the National Survey of Family Growth and found that living together does not increase the likelihood of getting divorced. She emphasized that what really increases the possibility of a divorce is the age at which couples get married. Young couples, according to her findings, are more likely to get divorced.
